What is a baseline?
A baseline is two identical studies, taken at two different times to determine if patterns are stable or if there are any changes. Therefore, the follow-up appointment is the most valuable. If the patterns are stable and not significant, there will be a recommend annual follow-up or earlier if any concerns should arise in the meantime. If there is not stability, there may be recommendation for further clinical evaluation and another follow up in 3 – 6 months.
